Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali has boarded "True Detective 3".
During the recent Television Critics Association's press tour in Pasadena, California, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys confirmed the network has a deal with the "Moonlight" actor to star in a potential third season of the anthology series.
"I have read five scripts for a third season. I'm very very impressed and excited about what I've read. I don't want to give away the storyline, but I really think they're terrific," Bloys said.
He added that they were still looking for directors for the anthology series.
Cary Joji Fukunaga directed all eight episodes of the first season, while the second season was split up among directors, including Fast Five filmmaker Justin Lin, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Ali took to his Instagram to confirm the news.
